I don't expect CNN to have a correspondent in Amsterdam but in Brussels?? How is this possible?

Jim Bittermann btw is on his way from Paris.

Didn't realize until now CNN had so many bureaus worldwide. ;-) It's a little shame they dont quite often use 'Bureau Chiefs' these days.

Liz Neisloss is based in Chennai, but CNN hardly ever uses her.

Reza Sayah is based in Islamabad, but he's in New York atm.

Arwa Damon is based in Jakarta, but she's in Baghdad (which is her former post)

No one in Rome (at the moment)

No one in Amman (at the moment)

Yes, Ivan Watson is based in Istanbul, but he's on embed in Afghanistan

Yes, Karl Penhaul is based in Colombia, but he's in Honduras following Zelaya.

Brian Byrnes is based in Buenos Aires, but CNN only use him sometimes.

No one in Santiago (maybe except CNNE, hopefully peramirez knows)

Buenos Aires has two CNNE correspondents: Guillermo Fontana and Javier Doberti.
Santiago has a CNNE correspondent: Alberto Pando, but the network also contacts any CNN Chile reporter in needed.
Do you know? CNNE doesn't have a correspondent in Bogotá, but two "collaborators".
"This new management is not one that tolerates any questions. The changes are alienating the public who has been loyal to the network for so many years. They're looking for a new audience. But if you read the comments on the social network sites, the viewers are not pleased with what they see on the air."

I always had the impression that CNN had more bureaus than that. Still, I guess it is a larger number than any TV news outlet here in the states, along with more than most TV stations around the world?

It's embarrassing they still don't have one in Canada. That was especially embarrassing a few months ago when Obama visited Harper. I think they just relied on the CBC.

And I thought they had one in Sydney. But none in Canada? CNN should have one in Toronto.

I don't know whether they should put one in Toronto or Ottawa. Vancouver could use one too.

No, there isn't one in Sydney (for now, at least). I remember during all those wildfires a few months ago, they just had to rely on Australian channels.

What about Singapore, too? That city is of great economic significance.

I can't believe they don't have a correspondent in Canada! Yikes. I definitely agree that they should have a correspondent based in either Australia or New Zealand as well. Nick Bryant on BBC World News has a report almost every day, or no less than 3 times as week at least, and I feel that CNN neglects that part of the world badly. Even if they didn't have a report for TV everyday, I find it highly unlikely a correspondent based down there couldn't produce 2 or 3 stories from the region for the website.

I think they have too many US bureaux. They created a lot of one-person bureaux in the US about two years ago, but I don't see the point in them when they have so many affiliate channels in the US.

For example, they put a bureau here in Denver a few miles away from my house, but whenever there has been a story here (excluding the Democratic National Convention last year), they always rely on their affiliate channels here. I'm not even sure who the correspondent is here. I think I saw her file a report about that plane crash in January, but the vast majority of that coverage came from the local channels, not the CNN bureau, and she didn't file her report until several days after it happened.

So, from what I've seen, I don't understand why CNN spends money and resources on bureaux in US cities like mine when they already have these cities well-covered by affiliate channels. I think the money and resources could be better spent on cities or countries that are desperately in need of a bureau (Toronto/Ottawa, Sydney/Canberra, Singapore, and a lot of Africa and Latin America).

I think they need to post a correspondent to Indonesia permanently. They rely on a producer, and I'm trying not to be mean, but everytime he's talking on the phone it sounds like he hasn't got a clue. They had Atika Shubert posted there back in the day, and they really need someone back there on a fulltime basis.

Actually, when you think about it, if you go back even just 3 years, I would be surprised if we couldn't come up with a list of cities and locations where they used to have a correspondent but no longer do.

When you think about it, CNN doesn't have a lot of correspondents at all. Not as much as they used to, and not as spread out across the world either.

The guy who used to be based in Sydney was Hugh Williams. He was in Somao recently but seems to be based with Atia in Afghanistan normally. I think they should re-open a bureau there in Sydney or Canberra so they can look after Oz and New Zealand and the other smaller Pacific nations.

I can't imagine how it would be so hard to get something set up in Canada as well.

With the news about Jie-Ae going freelance, I wonder what the status of the South Korea bureau is? It would possibly be the only CNN bureau without a fulltime correspondent?

I see Al Jazeera now has a bureau in Ottawa.

CNN? Can't you see Canada as being more than just "America's hat"? A G8 nation without a CNN bureau. :roll:

News on the Seoul office/bureau.

"CNN has been considering the closure of its Seoul office and the final decision is expected to be made later this month," the source said, requesting anonymity.

The 24-hour news channel, with about 30 offices around the world, was hit hard by the latest global economic crisis and has been studying ways to cut costs, the source added.


The full story is at the link below. It also contains details on Sohn Jie-ae's next movements.

This tweet is a proof there is no Seoul bureau anymore, right?
